Re: Sundays Sodium Sun - 3rd June

Yes, indeed it's difficult to say what that are, I may have to crack out my 5" scope and see how this works in Na. Certainly would be good skyburner if are capturing these features. Where did you get the diagram from? would be interested in more info about them...

Re: AR12712 in CaK and H-a with 280mm scope at excellent seeing.

Valery, I have never been to Mark's location but I guess being in a city the seeing could be worse than mine.

Re: Lunt or Quark?
